SsangYong Motors UK is delighted to welcome Station Garage to its ever-increasing franchised dealer network. The brand will be represented in both Aberdeen and Torphins, Scotland.
Station Garage was founded in 1979 by the late Bob Shepherd, and Adrian McGregor when they opened their first showroom in the centre of Torphins. The company specialised in fast Fords and soon gained an exceptional reputation for flexibility and excellent customer service, which in turn fuelled customers to travel from all over the country to service their automotive needs.
Adrian McGregor, director of Station Garage, commented; “We are delighted to join the SsangYong family. We believe that there are many synergies between our businesses, and we love the excellent product they have on offer. We are proud to continue to develop our facilities as we look forward to many more years in business”. McGregor, added; “We would like to thank customers and staff at Torphins and Aberdeen over the past 40 years for their contribution to our continued success and loyal support. We will, of course, continue to look after our Mitsubishi customers in an aftersales capacity, and we’re excited to welcome new customers too with the introduction of the SsangYong brand.”
Due to its excellent service and growing reputation, Station Garage increased in popularity and demand for servicing work and in 1986 the founders built the garage that we know today. This allowed expansion into the 4×4 market with the introduction of the Daihatsu franchise for the Northeast of Scotland. In 2000 Station Garage added the Mitsubishi franchise to its growing business and opened the dealership in Aberdeen. Fast forward to 2021 it carries on its 4×4 tradition and evolves again to include the SsangYong franchise.
Kevin Griffin, managing director at SsangYong Motors UK, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Station Garage in Aberdeen and Torphins to the SsangYong franchise. The business has an excellent reputation in Scotland and beyond for customer service. I’m positive that along with SsangYong’s value for money proposition, we can look forward to great things together.”
SsangYong Motors have also recently added Hinckley, Bicester and Hull to their dealer network.
